Perth has an excellent range of shops, supermarkets and professional services, and is in a pivotal position with motorway and dual carriageway connections to all the major cities of central Scotland. Perth also has a railway station with services to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness.

Recreational opportunities in and around Perth are excellent. Scone Palace is one of Scotland's finest stately homes; there is National Hunt racing and polo at Scone, and there are numerous golf courses nearby, including Murrayshall and Rosemount at Blairgowrie.

Perth is a gateway to the Highlands with ample opportunities for hill walking and, just to the north, skiing at both Aviemore and Glenshee.

There is a primary school within walking distance of The Stables and four secondary schools in Perth. There are a number of excellent private schools nearby including Craigclowan and Ardvreck (both preparatory), Strathallan, Glenalmond, Morrison's Academy and Kilgraston (girls only).
